Birchbox Breakdown

Even when you don’t have blemishes, there are other complexion nuisances to deal with—namely, sun spots, acne scars, and age spots. Instead of just concealing them, call in this gentle gel cleanser. Developed by a leading dermatologist, the targeted formula uses a team of natural skin brighteners, including licorice root and mulberry bark, to even out your complexion and lighten discolorations. Over time, you’ll have noticeably smoother, brighter skin. Now you just need to hold up your end of the bargain by using it every day.

How to Use

A cocktail of potent active ingredients works to fade the look of brown spots, scars, and redness while also leaving skin fresh and smooth. In addition to naturally brightening botanicals like mulberry bark, licorice root, and peach leaf, the formula has exfoliating glycolic and salicylic acids to refine skin’s texture and stave off blemishes.

Water, Ammonium Laureth Sulfate, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Glycolic Acid, Glycerin, Propylene Glycol, Potassium Hydroxide, Salicylic Acid, Mulberry Bark Extract, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract, Arctostaphylos Uva Ursi (Bearberry) Leaf Extract, Prunus Persica (Peach) Leaf Extract, Rubus Idaeus (Raspberry) Fruit Extract, Pyrus Malus (Apple) Fruit Extract, Dex-Panthenol, Sodium Benzoate, Xanthan Gum, Disodium EDTA, Methylisothiazolinone, Fragrance.

I have struggled with acne since I was 11 and am now almost 35 years old. Recently I flew home to see family and my 3-step clinique acne treatment was confiscated since it was too much liquid. When I got to my sister's house she gave me her DDF cleanser she had gotten as a sample in her Birchbox. At first I was panicking because usually throwing a new treatment in the mix means more breakouts but amazingly my skin was glowing like never before. As soon as I got home I purchased the full sized and am about to buy my second bottle of this miracle soap! I want to yell it from the rooftop: This stuff is AMAZING! I have never had good skin in my entire life and now I can go without makeup or concealer. This stuff doesn't make your skin look dull and gray like benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid either. It looks like healthy teen skin because the AHAs in this buff off all the dead skin and oil and just wow. WOW!!! If you have the never ending struggle with breakouts and you are tired of regimens that do a "good job" and want something that will work then look past the price tag. I would rather pay forty bucks for something that works than $5 over and over again for snake oil! Get it and never look back!

Like it, don't love it

I like this as a cleanser, a little goes a long way. But I haven't noticed that it has made my skin any brighter which is why I rated it a 4. Love the natural ingredients and how it makes my skin feel. Not sure if I would buy it again or not. I do use the 5% glycolic wash also by DDF and I do love that product.

This product did not work for me

I have very sensitive skin and was hoping that this product would even out my skin tone and make it smoother. Instead it made my skin redder and rougher. I have been using this product as recommended. I don't recommend this product for sensitive skin types.
